For professional garden designers, standing out from the crowd is imperative. Clients want beautiful yet distinctive outdoor spaces that reflect their unique personality and needs, however, sourcing materials and features that enable this true distinction in design can be a struggle.

Corten steel grants the creative freedom to develop one-of-a-kind garden elements tailored to each client and space, with planters, water features, edging, and more. Its strength, durability, and malleability remove barriers to customisation, and the distinctive patinas add a fresh touch of originality to your designs.

Some Unique Applications

Consider these examples of innovative corten steel garden applications:

A maze-like set of corten screens winding through plantings to create an immersive experience. The corten sheets can even be perforated and layered to control views and pathways.

A raised water table that flows from an artfully etched reservoir, mimicking natural springs and invoking a calming atmosphere.

Ornate planters reflecting traditional iron-work craftsmanship, combined with unique greenery to truly offset expectations and complete the look.

The contemporary patinas and character of corten steel bring a modern aesthetic not achievable with traditional materials, and by incorporating even one or two unique corten steel elements, you can set your design apart, showing clients and prospects your ability to think beyond the ordinary.

Yes, they do.

Typically, around 6 to 9 months.

Yes, we have a wide range of sizes. Please see the product pages on our website to see a drop-down list of available sizes.

Yes, Corten steel resists the corrosive effects of rain, snow, ice, and fog by forming a protective coating over the metal. Corten steel is completely non-porous, meaning that water cannot get into the material to then freeze and effect it.

Yes, it could. Whilst your corten steel item is weathering it will produce a lot of carbon run-off (very fine particles of oxidized metal – rust), which will stain any porous surface it is placed on to, such as stone patios and wooden decking. Once your corten item has completely weathered, the amount of run-off will be significantly reduced to almost nothing. However, there may still be some that could leave marks. The staining should be reduced with the use of a pressure washer. Once your corten item has weathered to a point you are happy with aesthetically, you can seal it using Owatrol Rust Oil. Please note – using a varnish on the corten steel will affect the colour by making it appear darker and ‘wet’.
